She looked surprisingly good considering the height of the fall. The wing had detached cleanly on the top right at the wing strut. Used some UHU Por and it's all good. The impact was so great that the plastic extension tab on my Hyperion battery pushed through the fuselage just a tiny bit. Surprisingly, the motor shaft seems true and I don't notice any vibration.
Gotta love this thing! Now I'm wondering if I need to "stock" a complete airframe as I slowly thrash this one...
Been there, done that!! It's easy to get mesmerized by those pretty high alpha knife edges and then WHAM!! LOL!
This plane absolutely excels at HAKE! Love it!
